    MacKinnon. Not that close. Unless my team already has a McDavid or a Crosby type/level guy, then I'd take Barkov as the 2nd line center and match him up against top lines. I think he'd be more useful playing second fiddle than MacKinnon.

    If my team had both MacKinnon and Al Barkov, Barkov would be the 2nd line center. But it'd be a pretty rad lineup, I reckon.

    I still prefer Barkov's overall game to Mack and Matthews.

    Strangely, the results are way more lopsided than last week...

    This year has been full of these MacKinnon vs Barkov polls

    Mackinnon quite easily. Mackinnon is closer to a top 5 C while Barkov is pushing top 10 imho

    MacKinnon. I like Barkov but imo this is an easy one for me.

    Still pretty comfortably take Barkov. One big offensive explosion doesn't outweigh my preference for Barkov's overall game. Both as a two-way player, and a guy who can make all manner of different linemates better.

    Mackinnon is the closest thing in the NHL to McDavid. Watching him tonight after the leafs /caps game was a treat. He's so electric.

    I absolutely love both players but this is fairly easily MacK to me.

    Better question is MacKinnon vs Monahan. Restart the old debate.

    Mackinnon if he keeps on producing like last year, if he slips into the 70-80 point category going forward then Barkov.

    Voted MacK but it's a lot closer than the poll results would suggest.
